Loud popping noise from wheel area..


Asked by Ksnissandriver Apr 26, 2013 at 03:29 PM about the 2001 Nissan Maxima

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just had an alignment done on my '01 Maxima. After I drove it, found that it "wobbled". Back in shop, found I needed ball joints replaced. Had that done, but a week later I am getting a loud popping sound when I turn, or when straightening wheels after turn. Is this from something they did in the shop, or is it just something else going wrong?

It sounds like the upper strut mount or a spring has broken.


Is your steering column binding? Bearing in there maybe.
